Magicians More Than “Pick a card, any card”

Even Comics are Serious

Many of us have heard it. The phrase “Pick a card any card.” But magicians are so much more than that. Even those whose¬† performances consist of the same effects everyone else is using, are more than just the cliques. You see, magicians take the art of magic very seriously, even those who are comic magicians.

Always Self Improving

Why does someone become a magician? Yes it’s true, it can sometimes be because they need attention and thrive on the applause of audience. But even now that it is not possible to perform for audiences because of the Coronavirus, magicians continue to make themselves better.

Much More than a Card Trick

Tonight I have a virtual meeting via Zoom occurring with other magicians. One of the agendas for this evening is that members will share magic memorabilia with each other. Collecting memorabilia of other conjurers is something that many prestidigitators do because they have such reverence for their fellow performers. This is because of their love of the art. Magicians are more than “Pick a card, any card.”
